THE CLIMBER

Pasquale Squitieri, Italy, 1975, Arrow Films, Crime - Italy

“Critics frequently lambasted [Joe D’Allesandro’s] acting ability, but there was no question the camera loved him and, in the hands of the right director, he could prove his doubters wrong.” -- Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital

Featuring another only-in-the-Seventies lead performance by Warhol icon Joe D’Allesandro (HEAT, TRASH, FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN), THE CLIMBER follows in the tradition of Pre-Code gangster classics like SCARFACE as it charts the rise and inevitable fall of a two-bit smuggler.

Throughout the era, Joe starred in all manner of sleazy bell-bottomed genre fare, from poliziotteschi (SAVAGE THREE, SEASON FOR ASSASSINS) to nunsploitation (KILLER NUN). THE CLIMBER is no slouch, as it’s crammed full of brawls, fistfights, shootouts and explosions!
